The first PTK meeting of the 2013-2014 school year was held on 9/3/2013. We had a great turnout of parents and got much accomplished. The full meeting minutes can be read here. The following is a list of funding that was requested and approved:

$3,000 for an extracurricular Improv theater program in conjunction with Santa Fe Performing Arts Company for the three classes of the 2nd grade starting in November. This program will include 20 sessions per class for a total of 60 sessions in total. The program will culminate in a performance at the Armory for the Arts Theater. Additional instruction time for these performances will generously be donated by Nicolas Saboto, CGE parent and Director of the SFPA. Special thanks to Nicolas for his time and energy in getting this program started!

$2,080 for a years subscription to the First in Math program, which was wildly popular with the kids last year. SFPS previously paid for this program but has since transferred that obligation to the individual schools. This request was made by Kim Pietrocci as her materials budget is already committed to other resources. This funding will benefit all kids K-6. 

$2,000 for after school tutoring administered by individual teachers. The amount paid to each teacher interested in participating in this program will receive the district standard wage of $23/hour. A $2,000 cap was initially approved, if and when that amount is reached additional funding for the program will be re-evaluated. This request was brought forth by Ashley Kendall, one of our 6th grade teachers and she will be the first participant in this program. 

$100 for the National Geographic Bee which is for the benefit of the 4th, 5th & 6th grades. This funding was requested by Amy Johnson, one of our 5th grade teachers.
